SUMMER REGISTRATION - Enrolling All Students!

Summer is a wonderful time for dancers to grow! Current and new students alike can try different dance styles and further progress their technique in our Summer Session! We offer a variety of Intensives, Dance Camps, Workshops & Summer Classes for students old and new and across all levels.

FAQs

Summer Classes are dance classes are offered in two separate sessions over the summer. Families tend to travel over the summer and having the option to attend the session that works in their summer schedule is super helpful. Register for both sessions and save $$. We also offer classes on a drop in basis (single class), but please note that the drop in rate is not discounted and is more that the rate per class when registering for one or both sessions.

Intensives, Dance Camps & Workshops are similar in that a student will attend (3 to 5) days in a row for (3 to 5) hours per day. They are designed to pack in a lot over the days a student attends and we regularly see accelerated growth in the short period of days.

They differ as Intensives are designed for dancers (ages 7+) with at least some experience, while most Dance Camps are designed for younger dancers, ages 3 – 6. That said our Swifties and Barbie camps are super fun and are designed for dancers, ages 7 – 11!

Workshops are designed with specific areas of focus on a dance style or technique. Students in Workshops typically work on a piece or several pieces with a mini performance on the last day. For example, the Musical Theatre Workshop covered numbers from the Musicals Cats, Cabaret and Mama Mia, performing them on the last day.

Our former session is less formal than during the school year. Athletic / dance attire is required for all camps, workshops and classes, but there is not a formal uniform. Our ballet intensives do require students to wear leotards, tights and ballet shoes, but there is no color or style requirement. Proper dance footwear is required for every class, camp and workshop (e.g. ballet shoes, jazz shoes, non-marking sneakers etc.) Please CONTACT US for further detailed information.

Make-ups are not offered during the Summer Session. Camps, Workshops and Intensives are paid for in advance and have specific curriculum designed for each day. Our Open Classes are offered via a drop-in basis, and thus can be canceled at no charge up to 48 hours in advance of the start of the class. 

Feel free to Contact Us with any questions!

FAQs

June 10th, 11th, 12th (Mon, Tues, Wed)

You can find out what show or shows your dancer(s) are in by finding their class (by name, day/time, teacher) on the following PDF:

4SDA SHOW LISTS

The PDF was emailed April 29th and has been posted on the Studio Bulletin Board.

We are finalizing the call times with the theatre admin and tech team. Your dancer will have a call time for their dress rehearsal and a separate call time for the performance, on the SAME DAY.

Call times are typically scheduled to allow a break so dancers can be picked up and taken somewhere to eat, before they return to the theatre for the performance.

On performance days, you should block off 3:00 –  9:00 PM on your family schedule. An example call time schedule could be:
3:00 PM Dress Rehearsal Call
4:00 PM Pickup – BREAK
5:15 PM Performance Call
6:00 PM Curtain

You can purchase tickets in person, online or over the phone at PCPA’s Box Office. Prices range from $30 – $40 (including fees) and there are discounts available.

TICKETS GO ON SALE MAY 11th @ 1:00 PM

Find all of the tickets details on our Spring Performance page.

All (3) shows will have reserved seating (not general admission / open seating). You can pick your seats when purchasing and also see the seating chart in advance. All of the seating and tickets details can be found on our Spring Performance page.

Dancers do not need a ticket to the show they are performing in UNLESS they will watch the act that they are not in from the audience. Everyone needs a ticket when sitting in the audience. 

Dancers who are backstage for the entire show do not need a ticket. You only need to purchase them a ticket if they perform in say the 1st act and then they want to watch the 2nd act from the audience.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the studio office (858-385-1999) or email info@4sdanceacademy.com.

The Spring Performance can only be a huge success with the help of parent volunteers. Parents are the glue that holds everything together, making a memorable performance possible! You can sign up to volunteer via your 4SDA Account. Check out this short video on how to sign up. The video is from 2022, so the recital dates are off, but the steps to sign up are the same.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call the studio office (858-385-1999) or email info@4sdanceacademy.com.

Please read through the full 2024 Recital Rules & Regulations PDF. There are expectations, responsibilities, and requirements for all dancers and their families. You will be required to accept and sign the Rules & Regulations waiver when registering for the 2024 June Recital.
